2. Traigh EAIS, Barra, Scotland, United Kingdom

Barra is the only airport in the world with a beach as a landing and departure runway (of course these are the only countries with low tide). The airport beach itself is a great place to lay your towel as there are no incoming traffic. 5 minutes away is Traigh EAIS, a true shining jewel in a row of beaches on the outer Hebrides.

3. Cala Xarraca, Ibiza , Spain

Granted, there are parts of Ibiza where someone can be ruined by 40 years of mass tourism. But let San Antonio, Playa d’en Bossa and beaches comparable to what they are and you will find several beaches on the White Island which are among the best in the Mediterranean region.

4. Reynisfjara, Iceland

Who says beaches should be golden? Near the town of Vik in southern Iceland is Reynisfjara in the most beautiful colors of black and blue, the sand there is decorated with ice from the Vatnajokull glacier. The water therefore feels somewhat cold if you dipped your toes in the water …

5. Virgin Mary Bay, Calabria, Italy

With such a great name,they have a lot of lives up to the beaches of Capo Vaticano, in the Italian Calabria. Fortunately, they are cut from the best wood, and not more exalted than the Virgin Mary’s Bay. But its biggest selling point is the ideal climate for growing red onions.

6. Skagen, Denmark

At Skagen there is a 10,000 year old strip of sand that continues to grow. Right at the end of that point, you can stand on two seas in the sand with your feet – the Skagerrak and Kattegat, which are very special.

7. Dune du Pyla, France

The Flanc Côté Ouest is the seaward side of Dune du Pyla, a giant sand dune along the Atlantic coast belonging to the Aquitaine region, near Bordeaux. The beach is hidden behind a 108 meter high sand wall where you have to climb over and then roll down to get there. It does take some effort on a hot day or in a sandstorm, but who dares is rewarded with a truly great beach.

8. Melide, Spain

Spain’s Atlantic coast does not get as much attention as its Mediterranean counterpart, but where no masses of people are, you can find beauty. Playa Melide is located in Pontevedra, Galicia, and is only monitored by three lighthouses and visited by few people. Here you will find only a lone surfer who does credit here in peace to the perfect waves.

9. Flag Beach, Corralejo, Fuerteventura

Hmm, you may think, Fuerteventura is not a very tourist destination where many Dutch people like to go? True, but few people go to this super tropical turquoise beach in the north of the island. From Corralejo is a long, hot walk to Flag Beach, but it’s more than worth it.

10. Dhermi, Albania

The Albanian Riviera; sounds like two words that do not really fit together, do they? But this part of the Adriatic coast has long been called the new Croatia as a beautiful beach holiday destination. So get to it before the rest discovered this. We do have to mention that it takes a terrifying journey to get over the mountain pass. Ah, then you will appreciate it even more when you are bobbing in the crystal clear water.
